Isolation and Maintenance Payments
If you live more than two miles from the nearest bus stop or your child resides near the school during the school year instead of at their primary residence, you may be eligible to receive a reimbursement for expenses.
To receive isolation reimbursement payments, you must:
If you meet this criteria, you can submit an application to the school board. Once it is approved, you will be required to keep track of your mileage and turn in a mileage log provided by CCSD#1 to receive payment.
Payment for isolation is determined by calculating the number of miles (minus two miles) from the end of your driveway to the nearest bus stop. For example, if it is 12 miles from your driveway to the nearest bus stop, you can claim 10 miles for each trip. In one day, if you go to the bus stop in the morning, return home, go to the bus stop in the afternoon, and return home, you would be able to report 40 miles driven for that day. That number would be multiplied by 65.5 cents for a total payment of $26.20 for the day.
Monthly Maintenance Payments
If your child lives near the school during the school year instead of their primary residence, parents can receive reimbursement for reasonable living expenses. The amount reimbursed can not exceed what would be paid in mileage if the child was to be driven to the nearest school bus. Maintenance payment will only be paid while school is in session.
